Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

25 ILCS 70/5

    (25 ILCS 70/5) (from Ch. 63, par. 42.85)
    Sec. 5. The note shall be factual in nature, as brief and concise as may be, and shall provide as reliable an estimate, in terms of population and dollar impact, as is possible under the circumstances. The note shall include both the immediate effect, and if determinable or reasonably foreseeable, the long-range effect of the measure.
    If, after careful investigation, it is determined that no population or dollar estimate is possible, the note shall contain a statement to that effect, setting forth the reasons why no such estimate can be given. A brief summary or work sheet of computations used in arriving at the Budget and Impact Note figures shall be supplied.
